Welcome to Goodlyburn Primary School

We currently have a nursery class for 3-5 year olds, strong start provision for 2 year olds and 12 primary classes from P1 - P7 including 2 multi-composite Gaelic Medium Education classes.


We are situated in the grounds of the University of Highlands and Islands (Perth College campus) off Crieff Road, Perth.

Our aim is to ensure that your child is happy and able to learn in a caring and supportive environment.  Working in partnership with our parents is really important to us and we encourage parental involvement in the life of the school.

Mrs Sands, Head Teacher and Mrs Crockart, Depute Head Teacher and teachers are always happy to speak with you about your child.  This can be a quick chat at the end of the school day or you are very welcome to make an appointment if you would like a longer discussion.
